    Looks like we may not get the AM21 today, so a simple poll to see if after reading the AM21 manual you have made a decision on where to put the AM21 in relation to your HR21...

    I'm planning to put the AM21 under the HR21- I think it will look nicer.

    On top of my HR21. I didn't have enough room before I got my Bluray Player. But, now I got that and it is not as tall as my old DVD/VHS player. So, there is plenty of room now. :)

    I guess we'll find out tomorrow (Thursday?) for sure, but is the height of 1" including the feet?

    It'll be on top of the HR21. I've got about 2 1/2 inches of clearance.

    In the library, with the lead pipe, and the help of Col. Mustard.

    Without that knowledge, I might not have a Clue. :)

    In reality, on top, only place for cables to run and continue to fit. And for now it will be in the room that will become the library at some point. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    On top of the HR21. I just think it'll look better there.
    If this test works out right, I'll probably swap the HR20-100 in the living room with the HR/AM21 combo, currently in the office.

    This might be the motivation to put it in my media room once the testing is done.

    I did that a couple of weeks ago. I moved the HR21 to the family room to the main TV.

    I really don't know as of yet. If I have room in the stack with the HR20, It will go there, but if not, I may need to put it off to the side. Worst case is I will have to move the HR20 to a different location and cabling may then become a problem.

    So that's ...

    16 top
    03 bottom
    00 side
    03 other
    02 undecided.

    In my case, I have the HR21 sitting on top of an open shelf, so it's very easy to slip it under the HR21. I could see where if the space is tight that it's much easier to put the AM21 on top ...

    I have my HR21 on the VCR shelf of an old TV stand. It looks like there is just enough room for the AM21 to fit on top of that. If not, I'll set it on top of the stand.

    Edit: It fit fine that way. I didn't even have to remove the ties on the power and USB cords.

    Got a real nice space for it right on top of the HR21.
